Music talk Thread

Post by lukethedrifter »

Seems like there is no real thread to talk about what you've been checking out lately so ...


Really dig the new Raphael Saddiq album. Also heard an interview with Barry Mann and Cynthia Weill yesterday. Though so so overplayed You've Lost That Loving Feeling is still just a brilliant song.

Also, I like that Danger Mouse spaghetti western thing but I want to love it.

Also, Cee Lo Green is one cool ass mother [expletive]. Covering Buddy Holly and Band of Horses and making it work. Of course.

Last I checked that had ended up being a video thread with very little talk about music.

If you aren't going to Fleet Foxes at the Pageant, Black Francis is playing at the Old Rock House that same night.

I'm seeing Fleet Foxes, but would rather catch Black Francis.

How 'bout that Bruce Springsteen guy, huh? He's gonna be a good un.

I'm the same way about the video thread. I wish this one would be Youtube free.

Good piece I ran across on the Nashville Tennessean site :
Peter Cooper: Country boys are wearing out calling cards
Posted on July 11, 2011 by Peter Cooper

To most every male country singer I’ve heard on the radio this morning.....

First, I’m on your side. I’m rooting for you.

I think we’ve got a lot in common. We probably like a lot of the same music.

But I don’t believe you.

All day, you’ve been singing rock songs to me about how country you are. And even country songs about how country you are. It’s been “dirt road” this and “back road” that, and “party in the woods” this and “redneck, hillbilly” that.

Then there’s been some stuff about fishing with cane poles, and skinny-dipping in the lake with some two-named girl. Was it Betty Sue? Wanda Lou?

And I don’t believe you were on the dirt road to the barn party with your redneck, hillbilly friends. I don’t believe the story about the lake. I don’t even believe anyone under the age of 30 is named Wanda.

I know there are probably exceptions, but I will not be considering them on a case-by-case basis. I don’t know why we’re so adamant about all of this, anyway. Why should I be interested that you’re so proud of where you say you’re from? Wasn’t it kind of an accident of birth?

Anyway, I like where I’m from just fine, but it wasn’t exactly my idea. It just sort of happened that way. And I could write a song about where I’m from — the Palmetto State of South Carolina — and make it chock-full of country references and stuff about the cradle of the Confederacy and the buckle of the Bible Belt, about tobacco fields and whacky politicians (I guess I’d leave out that last part).

But the truth is, you and I are from exactly the same place. We’re from the home pretty near the interstate exit. You know the exit: The one with the Waffle House and the Sonic and the Applebees, close to the big box retail store.

Wonder why he's going by Black Francis again?

Did you guys watch loudQuietloud? It was on streaming not too long ago. Anyway, I can't tell if he's a very normal dude or very strange. But anything Pixies is worth a look, they didn't age well (physically).
